Senator DURACK (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) -I refer the Leader of the Government in the Senate to the very extravagant allegations made yesterday in another place during question time by the Minister for Labor and Immigration, Mr Clyde Cameron, against the Premier of Western Australia, Sir Charles Court, which Sir Charles Court has vigorously denied. Are the Leader of the Government in the Senate and the Government concerned that these attacks may have harmed or will harm relations between the Federal Government and the State Government? Will the Government accede to Sir Charles Court's request for a senior officer to be sent to Western Australia to investigate the matter and to see whether there is any substance whatsoever in the allegations?

Senator MURPHY - I did see something in the newspapers about Mr Cameron expressing his views about the Premier of Western Australia. It is hard to believe that Mr Cameron would say anything extravagant. I will take into account what the honourable senator has said. No doubt consideration will be given to any reasonable request from the Premier of Western Australia.
